SOURCE: Long run time between defrost cycles

You have a broken defrost part. Either the heater, t-stat or timer. The longer you let it go without repairing it, the more parts is take out.

Is there a recall on Kenmore coldspot model# 10671192100 mfg date 01/02? it doesn't keep food in the frig cold.


Check out the self defrosting mechanism on unit. could have a bad defrost timer and/or defrost element. Also check the damper control that sends cold air from freezer into the refrigerator compartment. If set too low your refrig will be warmer. Also check the thermostat setting and operation.

ur defrost terminator is bad and is not going into defrost cycle? and this will stop the fan from circulating the cold air. the heat is only suppose to last up to 20-30 minutes then back into defrost mode? if the defrost timer is bad heres a trick u can use that may get u back into defrost mode, locate the defrost timer in ur fridge usually at top center. then under the timer u will see a tiny slot or hole. if u stick a small screw driver into that hole and turn slowly clockwise till u hear it click? i, it will now go into defrost and u should hear the fan and the compressor go off , hope this helps let me knoiw if u have any more questions, lastly I suspect its not ur timer but ur defrost terminator> meaning is will not allow it to go into heat defrost. its easy and relatively inexpensive.

We have a top freezer Kenmore refrigerator which is at least 12 years old. It is cooling intermittently. It will cool everything just fine for three or four days and then it will defrost completely.

Look inside the fresh food section behind and inside the control panel for a defrost timer and circuit board. Let me know when and what you find. Please unplug first, Thanks, Sea Breeze

These parts can produce a snapping or clicking sound
when turning the refrigerator on and off. The timer also
produces sounds similar to an electric clock.

Bottom freezer works; Top fridge too warm


The defrost timer is about 6 inches square and about 2 inches thick. It could be located under the box, in front or back. Some models of Whirlpool and Kenmore locate it behind the cover over the light inside the box. Westinghouse is often inside the cooler compartment, in the top. Some Gibson boxes put it in the back, about chest high. It's often hidden, but every self-defrosting refrigerator has one, except for a few models of Whirlpool and Kenmore with factory-installed ice makers — these models have an icemaker which also has the defrost timer built into it. The timer will have a stem that protrudes, or may be flush, which you can turn using a large blade screwdriver. Mark the position with a pencil, then turn it until it "clicks." This should start the defrost mode. The defrost mode will continue for 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the design. If after 20 minutes, the refrigerator has not restarted, or the timer stem has not moved, the timer is bad. When replacing the timer, you must use the correct one. There are about a dozen different configurations with even more types of connections. I suggest you order the part by make, model number, and serial number of your refrigerator to make sure you get the right one. Depending on your brand, and where you purchase the part, the price may be from $20 to $40 for this part.


You can test the termostat,just see if the fridge goes on and off..
If it goes off then the defrost heater sould go on.
The best way is to replace both the timer and thermostat...

if a evaporator gives any problems then the fridge wont cool down.

Hope this helps..

Regards.

Wouter.

Kenmore 596.72913200 Refrigerator is Warm, but Freezer is Cold


There should be a push in switch on the door frame that you can push to see if the evaporator fan is functioning. You will be able to hear it when you push in on the switch.

If your problem is defrost related you will see frost buildup on the back wall of the freezer . If it is defrost related it will be ether the timer, heater, or defrost thermostat that is your problem. If it is the timer, locate where the timer is. Sometimes located in the area of the temperature controls with a hole through which you can turn a clutch head screw clockwise very SLOWLY until you hear one audible click. This will start the defrost. if after 30 minutes it defrosts but does not start cooling again turn the screw just a little further and you will hear another click. The compressor should start. If this is you conditions the timer needs to be replaced. If it fails to defrost and restarts to cooling mode after 18-22 minutes the problem is in the defrost heater circuit.
